ToolTip always on top?

2 posts in this topic

I use some autoit scripts in an application that runs in fullscreen mode. I use tooltips to let me know what state the script is in, as well as to list what keys do what (eg. "F1: blah, F2: foo, F3: exit script").

Under windows 2000, the tooltips were 'always on top'. Even when I switched into my 'full screen' application. Under XP and Vista, however, this no longer happens. The tooltips are hidden by the app and I no longer have access to those visual cues.

I've searched around but am unable to find a solution to this problem.

Any help? :)

I don't get that problem. You could try something like this

If WinExists("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]") Then 
 WinSetOnTop("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]",'',1)
 EndIf

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.
